She said her most powerful memory was "the uproarious laughter between the two, and them having fun at my expense". Mr Trump and Senate Republicans have resisted Democratic calls for an FBI investigation into Ms Ford's claims. "I also very strongly believe that Judge Kavanaugh, like all Americans, deserves the presumption of innocence and that it was equally as important for him to have the opportunity to address the charges and defend himself". Ford's fear of flying was one area that Mitchell homed in on, getting Ford to admit that, despite her concerns and reluctance to fly to Washington for an interview by the committee, she had flown for vacations and professional conferences.
It may come as yet another blow to Kavanaugh, who, in his Senate hearing earlier today, had thrown a show of emotions, shedding tears alongside his mother, Martha, and wife, Ashley, during the hearing, and boasted of being "thoroughly vetted" and rated "well-qualified" by the ABA. "You may defeat me in the final vote but you'll never get me to quit".
"I'm telling the truth", said Kavanaugh.
After a day where Ford said she was "100 percent" sure that Kavanaugh had attacked her and Kavanaugh gave the exact same percentage of certainty that he hadn't done it, there was some question about whether any minds had been changed where it counted, in the Senate.
"Brett and Mark came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them", she said. Acknowledging that their support for Kavanaugh was based in part on his standing as a "committed textualist" who might help rewrite the Supreme Court'sRoe v. Wade decision, the editors said his nomination is now woven into the discussion of how to treat women who report harassment and abuse.
Kavanaugh, whose fate hangs in the balance, said the "circus" surrounding the allegations against him amounted to "a grotesque and coordinated character assassination".

Kavanaugh's scorched-earth strategy gave President Donald Trump what he wanted: a nominee willing to fight back aggressively and yield no ground to Democrats.
While Thursday's hearing prompted the bar association to recommend an investigation, another group that had endorsed Kavanaugh went one step further: the editors of America: The Jesuit Reviewsay his nomination should now be withdrawn. According to his prepared testimony, Kavanaugh plans to tell senators that he "said and did things in high school that make me cringe now" - but that he "never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes".
Ford claimed Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed during a party in Maryland, attempted to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming.
With Kavanaugh's confirmation vote set for Friday, and the schedule permitting his ascension to the Supreme Court as quickly as next week, Democrats' only option to oppose Kavanaugh may be impeachment.
Democrats' tactics were "the most unethical sham", he said in a fiery speech.
